An investigation of off-balanced yet precise multi-focused movement. Classes begin with mindful walking and body rolling practices to gather attention and set a tone of tender touch. From there, dancers progress through a series of spiraling sequences that establish a buoyant relationship with the floor, harness forces of momentum, and demand intricate expression of the limbs. Sequences eventually combine into dynamic performance phrases. Interplay with music offers an exchange of texture, rhythmic challenge, and nuance.

Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and David Dorfman Dance and has worked with many inspiring choreographers and dancing visionaries.
